7 Days Down, 158 Days To Go

Umm, well I ended up having a longer Christmas break than I had originally thought. It went really well until the last few days.

I had dreaded this day since we met, I always knew it was going to come, but yet I ignored that it would ever happen. Saying goodbye to Scott was the hardest thing I've ever had to do. I've had to do that so many times last year and I still have to do it. If I can get through January and February and I think I will be ok, or so I keep telling myself. I took out a second loan and it got denied, so I'm still as poor as ever until I can figure out what I'm going to do. I'm so glad school starts next week, being alone all day is very hard.



I left Scott Thursday night and headed back to Little Chute, which I was glad I did. We're having some family issues concerning my dad's business and the death of his friend. It tears me up to see him like this.

I wish I could've stayed home longer. I pretty much did, I left home early Sunday morning in order to be at work noon. My New Years was ok, my past 3 New Years have been sad I hope this years will be better. I don't have any resolutions because I don't think there is anything about me that needs to be resolved, but I do like to make lists of the good and bad things of the previous year. 2006 had more good things than bad compared with crappy 2005.

Top 5 Good Things of 2006
1) Meeting Scott
2) Moving out of my parents house into a new city
3) Turning 21
4) Finding a school and a career that I want to do
5) Becoming closer with my dad

Top 5 Bad Things of 2006
1) Scott left me
2) I broke my arm
3) I'm very poor
4) My dad might lose his business
5) I still work at Menards

5 Things I look forward to in 2007
1) Going to London
2) Scott coming home
3) Getting closer to graduating
4) Summer bike rides
5) Getting a new job*

Back to my Christmas break, I thankfully got Christmas Eve off even though it looked like I wasn't going to. Scott came up for Christmas Eve, my first year bringing a boyfriend to meet the entire family. Christmas day we went to his house. I like his family. It was a little weird not going to my grandmas. Spent a few days in Cudahy, called in sick on Wednesday, then headed back to Little Chute for a few more days. I saw a lot of people that I missed.













Not pictured is Keely who I finally got to see after a year and a half. The only people I didn't see were Tyler, Susie, and my kids.

To clear up any confusion on where I work. I stopped showing up at American Eagle because they were paying me a high school wage that I could not afford to live off of so I am part time at Menards still. I'm learning more and more about electricity, pretty exciting I know.

I've been doing a lot of knitting with the free time that I have a lot of. I'll post pictures of my projects later. The free internet we were stealing doesn't work anymore so I'll be spending a lot of time hanging out at libraries and coffee shops.

Meadow goes back to school Brooke's Always Productive Vol. 978

Meadow had her first day of school on Wednesday. Of course it also happens to be below zero.   Along with Meadow going back to school and needing masks, I also made her some headbands and attached buttons to hold the straps.  Perfect so her little ears don't get hurt. The kids requested Chocolate Rye Pancakes for this Valentine's breakfast. So sweet. In two ways. I guess Brooke got Meadow a Valentine's shirt. Nope, I got her the fleece lined leggings with hearts on the knees. She already had the shirt. Mmmm...the kids' favorite. You know it's cold outside when you can't see out the window.  Meadow was up to her crafty self and made Theo a batman mask. She made a wrong cut and patched it up otherwise it looks awesome. I made Brooke some peanut butter-peanut butter cup-chocolate ice cream for Valentine's day. It was delicious. When you live in a small place your bedroom becomes your sewing room. I also prefer sewing standing up.  I'm not sure if she's

Sand Dunes State Forest

Out of the blue we decided we needed to go camping. Being only a few days after the fourth we decided to head to a state forest. Most state parks are booked this time of year, so the forests are good alternative. On the way I got really hungry. We found a Culver's and ordered a small feast. Of course I got a blueberry malt and a bacon butterburger. The best of all malt flavors. Brooke and I shared cheese curds since she already ate leftovers.

Theo @ 3 Years

Our little love Theodore. He's not afraid to show his emotions and has a kind heart. He's the best hugger you've ever met.  He is 3'1" tall and weighs 30 lbs. He loves being outside, building things, helping us cook, playing video games, super heroes, his baby and blanket. He loves to pretend to be Link and Batman and Lightning McQueen is his jam. In the last year he's become a Papa's boy. I love the little runt. Most of the time. He still looks up to Meadow and loves everything she likes. At least when Meadow's not picking on him. He's gotten pickier with eating. Loves breakfast but not a fan of dinner. But he'll still try something when asked. Meadow is his guide and he'll basically eat what she eats. He's really picked up talking in the last year to full sentences and stories. He has a little bit of a stutter. Think it runs from Meadow to Theo. It's so much fun talking to my little guy. He hates getting his diaper changed and also
